Palo Alto Firefighters Pepper Sauce Review

The second Palo Alto Firefighters Pepper Sauce hit my lips, I thought, This tastes very familiar, and I love it! I later figured out, after my weekly drive through Taco Bell , that Palo Alto firefighters found a way to make something that tastes something like a higher-quality Taco Bell sauce without all the junk and with all fresh ingredients. Its super tasty, but how well-balanced is it in the heat department and how usable is it in the kitchen? Lets dive in.

Palo Alto Firefighters Pepper Sauce delivers delicious, fresh flavor sweet and peppery with a mild to medium heat and no sodium at all. 100% of its profits go to charity, so its a hot sauce purchase with meaning beyond the plate!

This Hearty Bean And Beef Chili Is Packed Full Of Flavor And Has A Nice Chunkiness With The Vegetables Its The Perfect Comfort Food For The Cold Weather

Hearty, filling, with just a little kick of spice- this Hearty Chili will warm your soul!

Good news. I finally finished my nap time ritual of picking up the endless clutter, starting dinner, throwing a load of laundry in the machine. I located my laptop, gave up on finding the remote for the TV, and sat down to write this post.

Jonathan sensed it, and immediately decided that 45 minutes was a long enough nap, and it was time to get up. Also, he was pretty upset about it.

Im just going to let those sleeping dogs lie for a bit. Hopefully by the time I get this done, he will be back asleep.

I was never a huge chili fan growing up. I always thought that it was too spicy, beans are gross, etc. The only good thing about it was piling it high with cheddar cheese. As I grew up, I acquired a taste for it- and I really started to get cravings for it once I saw how Davids mother makes hers. I liked that she loaded it up with carrots and celery. I loved the added chunkiness that the vegetables gave. I have messed and tweaked it over the years, but at this point, Im pretty set with what Ive got here.

Next. Lets talk about this pepper sauce. There is a store in Key West called Peppers of Key West. Dave is obsessed with hot sauces, so after we walked by it as we were meandering around one afternoon, we went in.

Look at that. Back asleep. Now, about that missing remote.

    Hot Sauce: Philanthropic Peppers

    Words by Silas Valentino

    It wasnt long after a third car swiped Lee Taylor as he was training for his annual charity bike ride between San Francisco and Los Angeles that the now-retired firefighter decided it was time he modify his mode of fundraising.

    This was in 2005 and the Palo Alto firefighter was at a crossroads. For the last several years, Lee had used these bike rides to raise money for college scholarships for local high schoolers but what good is doing good if it entails bodily harm?

    He described his dilemma to coworkers one day at Palo Alto Fire Station 5 on Arastradero Road, perhaps over lunch while a bottle of homemade crimson-colored hot sauce sat on the table. Listening were two fellow firefighters, Mike Chiesa and David Shum, who approached Lee with an idea that grew in plain sight.

    For years in the backyard of the firehouse, Lee had tended to a sprawling garden yielding gargantuan pumpkins alongside a row of peppers. In 1994, upon returning from vacation to his pepper patch, Lees peppers had turned red and ripe. Averse to waste, he went into the kitchen and after 20 minutes of experimentation, swiftly produced a simple recipe for homemade pepper sauce. Heavy on the hot.

    The guys chuckled and pulled me aside, Lee remembers. They said to sell the hot sauce. Unlike riding your bike, you wont die doing it.
